A venue for every taste
A choice of magical venues for both your ceremony and reception awaits within the four distinct precincts of the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden.
The Formal Garden, designed to resemble a traditional grand European walled garden, is ablaze with colour in every season, from beds of vibrant tulips and nodding dahlias and, of course, a romantic trellis of wisteria for that perfect photo opportunity. Conveniently located for your guests near the visitor centre and parking area, the Formal Garden also features a lawn where a marquee can be erected. This area of the garden has access to electricity, is wheelchair accessible and can host up to 150 guests.
With panoramic views across the wilderness of the UNESCO Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, the Wedding Tree Terrace is the Garden’s signature wedding ceremony venue. This immaculate terraced lawn is located under a sprawling Nepalese Elder tree and overlooks the centrepiece Rock Garden with its terraced drystone walls. This area can host up to 80 guests, and is ideal for a ceremony and post-nuptial cocktails.
If you dream of tying the knot barefoot on a sandy shore accompanied by the tinkle of falling water, The Beach may be the location for you. Located at the base of the concentric central Rock Garden, this area is at its most wondrous during late Spring and Summer, when proteas, waratahs, water lilies and the rare blue South American puyas are in bloom. The Beach also features spectacular views across the wilderness, with a capacity for 80 guests.
With its signature cool climate plantings, the Residence Lawn is a picture of perfection, particularly during Spring and Autumn when it’s at its most vibrant. With a capacity for 150 guests, this is one of the Garden’s most iconic options for both ceremonies and cocktail receptions. The Eucalyptus Lawn is another shady venue that provides a rustic, quintessentially Australian feel for your ceremony, a stunning choice for nature lovers.
The Heath and Heather Garden provides a private setting with an awesome valley view backdrop for a romantic ceremony or cocktail reception. This location can host up to 150 guests. Meanwhile, for a small seated reception (for up to 60 guests), there is also the indoor option of the Waratah Room, overlooking the Residence Garden.
